I think my daughter is stressing too much

When my daughter is stressed about a silly thing from school, she starts crying and freaking out. She is a bright student, always has a 4.0, but I am afraid she is stressing too much. I’m afraid it’s going to break her. I don't know if I should get her to a doctor or someone because this is not normal.

Kids these days are facing a lot of pressure! Add to that COVID19 and pandemic related stress! Play therapy is a great way to learn coping skills and to help your daughter understand what she is going through. Usually there is an underlying issue that is bigger than something that seems silly on the surface. Remember what is silly to you may be a huge deal to her, so try re-stating and imagining how she may feel so she knows you care.
